Osteoporosis scan

Osteoporosis scan

Hi update... I had my scan at 9.15 this morning and they said bones are fine... ๐Ÿ˜Š I asked what vit d level do they start treating people with d and she said 50.... So she said 15 is bad.... So Thanks to Blue Horizon I may have helped myself via their service.... It's painless takes 10 mins for scan... So worth asking what range number do the docs at the scan dept start issuing Vit d... ๐Ÿ‘๐Ÿ˜Š x

  • Scorpiojo,

    You will probably be referred to your GP for a prescription. I was prescribed D3 40,000iu x 14 days followed by 2,000iu x 8 weeks which raised my vitD from <10 to 107. I maintain levels with 5,000iu per week which I buy myself.

  • Hi, GP gave me the 10.000 d3 pro but I've only been on it or one I bought with k2 for a month... I had a call asking me to have another blood test after one month?? ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • I asked as this scan was at that clinic so that I know the range they feel is low... Not sure why GP wants another blood test so soon, but that clinic feel it was too low and wouldn't have improved that much in a month? ๐Ÿ˜Š

  • Scorpiojo,

    Aim for vitD around 100. Not sure 10,000iu daily for a month will be enough.

  • Thanks ๐Ÿ˜Š
